Ischemic Heart Disease - Risk Factors, Symptoms and Diagnosis

MD - Cardiology, PG Diploma In Clinical Cardoology

Ischemic Heart Disease - Risk Factors, Symptoms and Diagnosis

Ischemic heart disease is also known as ischemic cardiomyopathy in medical lingo. It generally results from weakened heart muscles due to previous conditions such as heart attack or other coronary diseases. The left ventricle of an IC patient tends to enlarge and gets dilated. As a result of this, the heart fails to pump an adequate amount of blood into the body resulting in a heart failure.

A doctor typically tries to find out the underlying cause of the condition and evaluate the extent of damage that has already happened. A combination of surgery, lifestyle changes, medication and other methods could be recommended to fix the condition.

Symptoms of Ischemic Heart Disease:

An early stage ischemic heart disease could not show any symptom at all. However, if the IC results from diseases related to the coronary artery, some of the common symptoms that are encountered include dizziness and fainting, unexplained weight gain, fatigue, congestion in the lungs, chest pain, swelling in the abdomen, sleeping problems, swelling of the feet and the leg, shortness of breath etc.

Risk Factor of Ischemic Heart Disease:

IC is typically caused by coronary artery diseases and heart attacks. Some of the other risk factors of this disease include diabetes, high cholesterol, long history of drug abuse, obesity, family history of cardiac diseases, amyloidosis, blood pressure, long history of smoking and bad lifestyle. Men are at increased risk of developing ischemic heart disease. Women above the age of 30 who is an active smoker and consume contraceptive pills are also at a high risk of developing ischemic cardiomyopathy.

How Is IC Diagnosed?

A cardiologist will perform a physical exam and conducts one or several tests to diagnose the condition. A blood work measuring the level of triglyceride and cholesterol is the first step towards it. This can be followed up by several imagery tests such as MRI and CT scan to examine the internal tissues. Some other tests that could be done by a cardiologist include ECG, angiography, EKG and radionuclide studies.

How Is The Condition Treated?

There is a step approach to treatment for ischemic heart disease. The first is lifestyle related. A healthy diet must be followed on a regular basis. Diet should be free from cholesterol, sodium and processed fat. Quitting smoking and drinking is a key lifestyle change that a person will have to undergo. In the medication front, a cardiologist might prescribe beta blockers, blockers of calcium channels, aldosterone inhibitor and blood thinners. The idea behind every medication is to ensure that the heart muscle works at the optimum level. If medication doesn’t work, a doctor might suggest procedures such as stent insertion, pacemaker implant, angioplasty and radiation therapy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Healthy Penis Maintenance: 4 Not-So-Obvious Tips

MD - General Medicine

Healthy Penis Maintenance: 4 Not-So-Obvious Tips

There are a lot of healthy penis tips that may seem overly obvious - which doesn't mean one should ignore them, of course. Many of the most obvious ones, such as checking for STIs or practicing good penile hygiene, are the backbone of appropriate penis care. But there are some methods of ensuring a healthy penis which simply may not occur to a guy. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be followed, however.

Keep the teeth clean.

This is one of the most surprising pieces of advice: Pay very close attention to oral hygiene.

One may well ask why the state of one's teeth and gums should have any effect on an organ that is several feet away and not directly connected to the mouth.

Yet oral health can have an impact on penis health. Several studies have found a link between gum disease and erectile dysfunction. When teeth are not kept healthy, bacteria forms. The immune system attacks these bacteria, but some seep into the bloodstream. When too much of them build up in the blood, it can damage blood vessels and subsequently blood flow. And good blood vessels and blood flow are essential for proper penile functioning. So it's strongly advised to brush and floss properly every day.

Careful with the laptop.

Modern communications are a marvel which allow us to access tons of information just about anywhere. It's now a common sight to see guys sitting on trains, benches, sofas, etc. with a laptop cradled on their laps, tapping away for hours on end and reaping the benefits.

And also possibly reaping the detriments as well. Placing the laptop so close to the crotch may not be good for maintaining a healthy penis. A lot of heat occurs with long-term laptop use, and high levels of heat on the testicles can have a negative effect on both sperm creation and testosterone production. So, guys, keep the laptop on a table and off the crotch whenever possible.

Beware cold and allergy medicine.

No one particularly wants to have a cold or an allergy, but for men it's necessary to be careful about what one uses to treat these common ailments. Many over-the-counter medicines commonly used for colds and allergies include pseudoephedrine, which can have a negative effect on erectile function. (In fact, one of the treatments for priapism - a dangerously long-lasting erection - is pseudoephedrine.) If possible, men need to utilize treatments that do not contain this ingredient.

Kick butts.

This doesn't refer to getting into a brawl but to kicking the smoking habit. Smoking is simply bad for a person, period; one reason why this is so is that it does damage to the penis. Smoking is another factor in blood vessel damage, and a significant one. One study has shown that men who gave up smoking experienced a substantial boost in the number and quality of their erections in as little as 8 weeks.

In addition to these more obscure tips for a healthy penis, there's a very important obvious one: Regularly apply a superior penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to the manhood. The appropriate crème will address many common penile health issues. For example, a crème with L-arginine helps with penile blood flow issues. L-arginine boosts nitric oxide production, which in turn plays a role in keeping those vessels healthy and open. In addition, a crème with a potent antioxidant such as alpha lipoic acid further aids in general penis health. Alpha lipoic acid fights harmful oxidative and aging processes in penile cells, keeping at bay the premature aging of those cells and improving the overall look of the organ. The simple step of applying Man1 Man Oil daily can enable a man to maintain a higher penile health profile with ease.

HI, My father, aged 68, one month back suffered from gastroenteritis. On the 4th day, he started to complain of low back pain with fever and chills. Almost a month now after showing him to different doctors we hospitalise him and we were informed that his is having sepsis causing kidney dysfunction and pulmonary edema. After 10 days in hospital, he is very weak with haemoglobin at 6.9 and platelet count at 150. He still feels the low back pain - it is felt upon movement, or posture change but not on lying down in one position. He generally complains the pain as being on the back sides under the rib section. His creatinine has come down from 1.4 to 1.31 but doctors say that it could be due to TB though PET scan and biopsy spine is negative. Myeloma is negative as well. Can someone throw some light on what it could be - is it a muscle strain, nerve root pain, kidney infection related pain, IBS infection? Point is he seen Nephrologist, Spine surgeon, Cardiologist, Internal medicine, Neurologist and Pulmunologist but they have mostly cleared him expect for some Kidney infection, and possible Spine TB suspicion. Please note the back pain is mostly being felt around the sides of the low back and not along the spine, it does not even travel along the legs. Also he never had a back pain previously and has always been very active. Please advice.

I have burning sensation in urine specially when I mix littlebot chilly in vegetables why. I feel fatigue also.

I have burning sensation in urine specially when I mix littlebot chilly in vegetables why. I feel fatigue also.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is really difficult answer why urine gives burning sensation if chilies are added to vegetables. Because it difficult to understand how those things pass or reach kidneys and then urine. Burning sensation in urine is due to increased acidity of urine, which tends to happen when there is urinary infection. My advise is to get a routine urine examination to check if there is infection and if it is present then a suitable antibiotic may be taken along with plenty of water as well as some alkaliser. Thanks.
